A Call To Political Responsibility

I am posting the link to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops' document on political responsibility. As the election draws near and voting commences, we need to know what we are really doing when we cast a vote.

You may also want to prayerfully consider some form of extra prayer and fasting in the three days before the election on Nov. 6th.

As Queen Esther prayed and fasted for three days before approaching the king, her courage opened the king's heart and her people were spared from certain destruction.

May our prayers to God be heard and may the grace from our sacrifices overflow to open the hearts of the American people.
